Curious what CORE participants have to say about the course? After a highly successful pilot cohort, made up of students from over 20 schools including 10 Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs), they are sharing their thoughts and takeaways.

Here’s what they had to say:

  • 90% rated the course very good or excellent
  • 96% rated real estate content as very good or extremely valuable
  • 96% rated employable skills content as very good or extremely valuable
  • 98% rated life coaching sessions as valuable or extremely valuable

One Birmingham native’s experience with CORE

I had the opportunity to speak with Breanna Green, a Birmingham native and current Alabama A&M student who just completed the CORE program. Though she had some previous industry experience, she feels that the course is an incredible opportunity for students honing in on their career path.

She shared that it was, “like a Commercial Real Estate 101” course, and offered valuable exposure in all areas of the industry, while providing practical job pathways in each sector.

“I love what the CORE program stands for—it aims to diversify the real estate industry and I think that’s something that definitely needs to happen. In a past internship, as great as it was, I was the only person there that looked like me. It adds an intimidating factor to the job, and I spoke with some other African-American real estate professionals that have experienced the same thing. So, I think it’s important that we let Black kids know that they have these career opportunities at their disposal, thanks to programs like CORE.”
